University of Maine – University of New Brunswick
History Graduate Student Conference
October 15-17, 2004
The history graduate students of the University of Maine and University of New Brunswick wish to announce the sixth annual International Graduate Student Conference, October 15-17, 2004. In past years we have attracted participants from a wide range of universities throughout the United States and Canada. This year’s event will be held on the University of Maine campus in Orono, Maine. We invite all interested graduate students, from any university or college, to submit paper proposals related to any topic of historical investigation. This conference is designed to offer graduate students an opportunity to present their work before a friendly audience of their peers and also an opportunity to meet other graduate students who have similar experiences and interests in our expanding discipline.
This year’s conference will feature a keynote address by University of New Brunswick Professor William Parenteau. Professor Parenteau studied at the University of Maine and the University of New Brunswick, where he completed his doctoral thesis on the development of the pulp and paper industry in New Brunswick. He is a member of the editorial board of Acadiensis: Journal of the History of the Atlantic Region. His articles have appeared in Acadiensis, Forest and Conservation History, Environmental History Review, The Archivist and the Canadian Historical Review. He has contributed chapters to Trouble in the Woods: Forest Policy and Social Conflict in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick (1992), Contested Countryside: Rural Workers and Modern Society in Atlantic Canada (1994) and New England and the Maritime Provinces: Comparisons and Connections (2001). He is currently working on the history of the Atlantic Salmon Fishery in the decades after Canadian Confederation.
